for the u.s. senate in texas. it started in january of 2011. i was at 2% in the polls. the margin of error was 3%. those were the real poll numbers. and we were thrilled. we went through a $50 million primary. the most expensive primary in the country. $35 million in nasty attack ads. after watching all of those ads, she turned to me and said, goodness gracious. i did not realize what a rotten guy you were. we saw something incredible happened. we saw thousands of men and women across texas come together. getting on facebook or twitter, enough already. we can't keep painting in pale pastels, we need to stand up and take this country back. what we saw was incredible. starting from 2%, despite being outspent 3 to 1. we won the primary by 14 points and won the general by 16.

covers national politic of the "washington post." texas republican senator ted cruise cruz. what is he saying? >> he released his birth certificate in the story in the "dallas morning news" that was posted late sunday night that talk about an issue we have been looking at for awhile which is can he run for president and serve as president. he was born in canada to a u.s.-citizens mother and cuban mother. there's never been a president foreign born like that. legal experts generally agree he can probably serve as president. it remains somewhat uncertain whether or not that's the case. >> legal experts are claiming that he is a canada citizens. beyond acknowledging that news. what is he doing in response? >> well,, you know, i think this is a roleout for him. he's tick -- sticks his tow toe to the presidential process. he was in iowa and going to new hampshire for another event. those are two important state in the presidential process. i think it was an effort by his team to get the issue out of the way, and have this debate at the time when the heat of the campaign is not being waged w

, if all goes well, the great stennis -- senator wendy davis of texas will think about running for governor. [applause] if we want to see a woman in the white house, which we do, we also need to see and support women running in governorships. these are executive leader positions and in the united states, 24 states have not ever come in their history, elected a woman governor. they are not alone. we have to do this so this is another piece of the puzzle. once you see it, you get it. it is not an issue anymore. we've got to keep on pushing state-by-state and i truly believe that once we break the glass ceiling for the white house, it will open up so many doors for so many women across the country in governors and mayors races and city council and you name it. that is why it is so important. >> senator mccaskill, your mother was an elected official. is she why you ran? a simple way of putting it -- i certainly thank my mother to father gave me permission be bossy and opinionated. [laughter] my dad reassured me that even though no one really wanted to date me in college, it would get better. [l

[ laughter ] so i really wasn't in the potpourri category of questions for this one. i have to confess i did not see the sanjay gupta column that you're referring to so it's hard for me to comment on it at this point. >> in this column, dr. gupta, who was the president's one-time choice for surgeon general apologized for misleading the public on the effects of marijuana and also explored the subject in his cnn entitled "weed." >>> dr. oz putting his great skill
